Hi I've recently found this forum and excellent advice given here and wonder if I could ask for some help directly. A recent dental visit left me shaking uncontrollably and haven't been well since, 3 weeks now. He gave me adrenaline dental injection. I've been on levo 10+ years now with little improvement in energy. Very tired nowadays just work and sleep but even that difficult. I also have vitiligo on hands and feet. Huge list of other symptoms including weight gain, swollen tongue, brittle nails, dry skin, severe headaches, joint pain, etc.
GP only tests TSH and T4 (I didn't know there were other tests until I found this site). Levo dose often changed over years but mostly on 150mg
Two most recent test results are:
TSH 7.8 (range 0.3-5)
Free T4 17.1 (range 8.8-18.8)
Was at this level for quite a long time as gp said it was my body working to produce throxine (?)
TSH 1.64 (range 0.3-5)
Free T4 15.8 (range 8.8-18.8)
I'm now fortunate to have company bupa cover so thinking I should have other tests particularly adrenal testing.
Would really welcome your thoughts. Many thanks. J
